Description

2019 Campbell River Highland Gathering

Here we go again! The games last August were a booming success and we are keen to grow the games again this year and make it even better! Our gathering will, once again, take place at Nunn’s Creek Park in Campbell River on Vancouver Island from August 9-11th. The gathering, as last year, is attached to a long-running Salmon Festival and Logger sports competition.

Friday August 9th will be a novice clinic/competition. Following the Novice class there be a Sheaf Challenge Event and a Log Press Strength Challenge, with prize money, in the evening.

Saturday August 10th will start off in the morning with Amateur classes and will finish up by noon. The open classes will then take the field starting around 12:30. We will be doing a full competition with all 9 events. The competition may run into later afternoon but there will be plenty of stuff happening and plenty of crowd to cheer you on! After the open Class Competition we will once again hold a Pole push Contest!

Sunday August 11th will start with the Master’s classes from 9am till noon. At mid-day any competitors who successfully turn their competition caber will have a crack at our challenge caber. Following the challenge caber there will be 2 Natural Stone Challenges! Stay tuned for more details! All challenge events will have prize money and I ask that all open class competitors please stick around for at least a few of them and put on a show for the crowd! They were all a lot of fun last year!

There will also be free camping right next to the throwing field with 30 amp power access. Please let me know ahead of time if you are planning on camping so that I have a general idea of numbers.

If you sign up as a competitor in one of the Highland Heavy Event classes then you DO NOT need to pay extra to participate in the Feats of Strength challenge events. If you are not competing in any of the classes but want to do the strength challenges then you need to purchase a "Feats of Strength" ticket.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me via email. kilted1979@gmail.com
